The Curse of the Goddess Pele

Posted By Staff

Date: December 29th, 2015

peleHawaii – Potential visitors are warned about it in all the guidebooks and tourist materials. Anyone who takes Pele’s natural treasures home will suffer her wrath in the form of a curse, a fate that involves a lot of bad luck.

And the curse seems to work. The Hawaiian post office regularly receives packages containing stolen treasures. From stones and rocks to sticks and shells, countless tourists mail their stolen souvenirs back.

Some include letters to Pele herself. Others detail the bad luck their theft has brought them. Packages and letters attribute death, depression, illness, and—bizarrely—the “bad luck” of winning a lottery that wasn’t as big as they’d hoped. It’s all thanks to Pele’s bad luck curse.

Some proclaim to not even believe in the curse or to have suffered bad luck at all . . . but they think the theft is nevertheless standing in the way of their good luck.

Sogen Kato’s mummified corpse was found in his bedroom

Posted By Staff

Date: August 20th, 2015

katoFrom Strange Facts: Sogen Kato was thought to have been Tokyo’s oldest man until July 2010, when his mummified corpse was found in his bedroom.

It was concluded he had likely died in November 1978, aged 79, and his family had never announced his death in an attempt to preserve his oldest man record.

Relatives had rebuffed attempts by ward officials to see Kato in preparations for Respect for the Aged Day later that year, citing various reasons from him being a “human vegetable” to becoming a Sokushinbutsu (practice of observing austerity to the point of death and mummification.)

The cause of death was not determined due to the state of Kato’s body.  More
